About twelve years ago, I began my journey with paint. I have been creating all my life with fabrics, color, and design, but I have found that painting in oils challenges me the most. I once read that one's painting style lies within oneself, and I believe that to be true.
I feel that a painting must have some kind of drama; something that draws the viewer to the artwork. It could be the contrast from dark to light, or the artists' use of color. I have found that I enjoy incorporating the use of the palette knife in my work.
I believe I have continued to grow, and I prefer painting in a "loose style". Over the years I have developed my "whimsical birds". My preference is painting wildlife, seascapes, and landscapes.
Please see the "Curriculum Vitae" for most of the galleries, art shows, and exhibits I have participated in over the years.
